LIBERTY

Why do we sit down when all should be standing?
And why do we back down at the critical moment?
Like running away from the waves of the ocean
We head for the hills with the high tide approaching
As sand slips away from the castle
When its time to stand upright, why do we falter?
Like placing our freedom on the sacrificial altar
We hold tight to our fears and defend our oppressors
As we fight for their lies and become the transgressors
As pacifists transform to violent aggressors

I’m only a stranger here, I’m a long, long way from my home
And they say I can’t change all the things I find strange, For what can one man do alone? They say what can one men do alone?

When is the right time to stand up for freedom?
Could it be when you start to fear creating children?
Who’ll inherit the pain and the debt of this nation
And be slaves to the banks who cause hyperinflation
Who are masters of commerce, lies, and bad legislation
Whoa, If you looked in the eyes of a thousand young children
Through fences of razors, their innocence stolen
As the red flag of tyranny flies in the open
Is that when you’ll finally notice? Whoa.

But, I’m only a stranger here, I’m a long, long way from my home
And they say I can’t change the things I find strange, For what can one man do alone? Yes, what can one men do alone?

I’m only a stranger looking to find better nature in my fellow man
But they keep telling me it’s a sin to be free & that’s more than I’m willing to stand

Where will you be when the order is given?
To censor your mind as free speech is forbidden
As martyrs for peace from the world will be driven
Away by the sound of a bellowing thunder
And choke on the blood of a dream going under
As arrogant men tear up our constitution
And from every direction we cry revolution
Standing together and without permission
Soldiers for Truth in the War of Attrition
The love of our country as our ammunition, ohh.

I’m only a stranger here and I’m a long, long way from my home
And I’m going to change the things I find strange
For I am not one man alone
Yes I’m only a stranger, I’m a long, long way from my home
And I’m going to change the things I find strange
For I know that I’m not alone
Yes I know, I’m not alone
Not alone
